I have an autozone intake with 2, 6" straight pipes going into a red cone filter sitting on top of my PCM mount. The temps are going down here tomorrow and I was wondering if i should put my gutted airbox back in..... I am kind of in a toss up between what i like better.
I like my mom'* stock intrigue how it'* quick, but quiet. And I like the noise my intake gives my car, most days. Sometimes it just seems like the noise is almost a nuisance. I want to keep getting the gas mileage i have been getting...(415 miles per tank).... and keep my performance. I like the gutted airbox because it seems to pull the same at WOT and it still keeps the car at a reasonable volume. I think it would be annoying if the car was any louder, starting it in the cold.
I know willwren says the autozone intakes are crap, to me it feels like my intake gives it a little more, but it may just be the sound it makes, tricking me. I guess I am looking for an opinion on the intake dilemma.
I would get a FWI, but I am still working on paying off my car ($450/month) and I am paying for college right now, so I can't afford it.
